Book Release Strategy

THE SEA TRIALS OF AN UNFORTUNATE SAILOR will be available soon!Seeing that I basically have no name recognition, it is going to be a long, hard slog trying to get folks to read THE SEA TRIALS OF AN UNFORTUNATE SAILOR once I release it. Consequently, I am going to have to come up with some novel and not so novel (pun intended) means of marketing it.

Here’ what I have so far:

I will be releasing THE SEA TRIALS OF AN UNFORTUNATE SAILOR on Saturday, February 19, 2011, via Kindle and as a pdf download from this website.

The book will be available for free until Friday, March 4, 2011.

For anyone who provides a book review on Amazon between February 19 and March 4, regardless if it is a positive or negative review, I will send them an advanced copy of POEMS FROM THE RIVER, a collection of poems that I will be releasing on March 5, 2011.

Beginning Saturday, March 5, 2011, the price to purchase THE SEA TRIALS OF AN UNFORTUNATE SAILOR will be $2.99.

Beginning Saturday, March 5, 2011, the price to purchase POEMS FROM THE RIVER will be $.99.

That’s it for a book release strategy…that’s all I got so far.

Let me know if you have any other ideas that you think may help get the word out about the book.

Now that I set a release deadline for myself, I guess I had better stop hemming and hawing and get busy on the final edits.
